One of the last items on the list when you’re planning a destination wedding in Colorado is usually the groomsmen gifts. It’s a simple tradition, which honors the special bond the groom shares with each of the men in the wedding party. But while it’s simple to give the bridesmaids something ‘easy’ like jewelry, it can be harder to come up with groomsmen gift ideas. They can really be anything! So why not pay tribute to the wedding destination in your choice? Here are seven of my top picks for mountain wedding groomsmen gifts.
Mountain cufflinks. Cufflinks are a classic groomsman gift and you can find a wide variety of designs and motifs. So why not opt for one that has a little mountain design? It will always remind the recipient of your wedding.
Bolo ties. Bolo ties are the perfect suit accent for a western gentleman, making them a fun idea for a groomsman gift (whether or not it’ll be worn for the wedding itself).
Pocket knife. I’m not sure how often pocket knives really come in handy in day to day life, but men do love them! A personalized pocket knife makes a thoughtful on-theme gift for a mountain wedding.
Compass. Groomsmen are sure to appreciate this hark back to the days of old-fashioned adventuring, so gift each of them with a beautiful vintage style compass engraved with their name or monogram.
Custom axe. Because nothing says ‘mountain man’ quite like a personalized wood chopping axe!
Dopp kit. If the groomsmen are traveling from out of town for a destination wedding in Colorado then a leather dopp kit makes a thoughtful gift. Additionally, they can continue to use for their travels in days to come.
Leather gloves. Sturdy bison hide leather gloves are a perfect Colorado groomsman gift. They’ll also be useful whether he’s an outdoorsman or simply working on a home DIY project!
So there you go! Seven ideas that are perfect for the Colorado groom’s best bros, and that are sure to be a hit!
